Global Forum International Luncheon: The Soundtrack to Democracy - Music’s Political and Social Power

“Dictators are always afraid of poets.” - Ursula K. Le Guin

Across genres, continents, and generations, artists have harnessed the unique power of music to rally imaginations and propel ideas into action. The 2019 Global Forum at Canadian Music Week will explore why the winds of change so often blow from the lips of artists, and how musicians can most effectively create social and political change with their art.
